Food versus Fuel?, NW Biodiesel Network Monthly Education Forum

June 28, 2011 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

NW Biodiesel Network Monthly Education Forum

Food versus Fuel?

Biofuels have been blamed for high commodity prices, food shortages, rain forest destruction, bad agricultural policies worldwide, and environmental disaster. Understanding the issues surrounding using biofuels is critical to making rational decisions about our future energy policy and determining if they’re truly a valid fossil fuels alternative.

The NW Biodiesel Network’s June Education Forum will present a discussion on both sides of this issue. We have invited experts representing both perspectives to have a calm, respectful and fact-based discussion on the issues and potential conflicts. Audience members will have the opportunity to ask questions on the issue and reach their own conclusion on this issue.

The NW Biodiesel Network is pleased to present:

  • Daniel Shafer, Principal Manager of Beaver Biodiesel in Oregon, which “manufactures premium quality biodiesel fuel derived from recycled cooking oil and animal tallow”
  • Russ Finley, NW Ebike Network Founding Member who has written extensively on Biodiversity and Biofuel issues over the years
  • Atul Deshmane, CEO and President of Whole Energy
  • Derek Andreoli, Energy Transitions Northwest founding member and Peak Oil specialist who has presented on topics such as “Oil For Dinner. How Peak Oil and politics affect what we eat.”

When: Tuesday, June 28, 2011, 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Where: @ Phinney Community Center, 6532 Phinney Ave. N, Seattle WA 98103
